After much thought and discussion, we’ve decided that 2017 needs to be a year of rest and renewal at Leg of Mutton. To that end, we’ll be focusing on our art practices and a couple of other select projects, and not open the gallery this year. We’re grateful for your support of our fledgling endeavour during 2015 and 2016, and we shall see what 2018 holds in store in terms of possibly reopening LoM.
As alluded to above, we are involved in two exciting upcoming exhibitions at Aardvark Books that we thought our lovely LoM audience should know about. The first is Fire + Earth: Ceramic Creativity in the Marches. This first-ever survey of the diversity of ceramic practices in the region will feature 18 artists and makers, both established and emerging. Andrew and I are honoured to be among the invited artists, and it’s been a pleasure to also be involved with the curating and organising of the show.
Please see below for information on the opening hours of ‘Fire + Earth’. To whet your appetites, I’ll be posting an image a day on the LoM website from the participating artists. The show is going to be a stunner, and we really hope to see you there!
‘Fire + Earth’ information:
8-23 April 2017
Private view: Friday 7 April, 6-8 PM
We’re also organising a 15-artist exhibition for Shropshire Hills Art Week at Aardvark Books. This is SHAW’s fourth year, and it’s certainly become an established event in the region’s arts diary. SHAW 2017 takes place from 3-11 June, and the Aardvark exhibition will run for an extra week, through 18 June. Details to follow starting in May.
For more details on both of these exhibitions, including images from exhibiting artists, please keep your eye on the Leg of Mutton website. And don’t ever hesitate to get in touch if you need more information.
